Question: Are you sure its 265, i thought that was what the standard sti type uk was. I had been told by subaru themselves it would be 305hp with the ppp installed. Guess i\'m gonna have to get the car in and get it dyno\'d Cheers Tom
Answer: It's what we've seen most often! The PPP tends to ramp up the boost early, giving plenty of torque, which of course gives the car the get up and go. by the time it gets to peak power, around 5500, the boost is back to stock levels.

Question: Hi Alan. I asked before about bringing my Sti 8 with the PPP in to you and getting some more beans under the bonnet. You said a prodrive converted sti wouldn\'t give 300bhp. What would be the average figure be and how much for a dyno\'d printout on my car? Cheers again Tom
Answer: Hi Tom We are more used to seeing around 265 bhp or so with otherwise standard Prodrive cars. Of course, there is the exception, which is where the dyno comes in! Bear in mind we are talking about graphs, so it doesn't mean the car doesn't perform well in the mid range, relative to its top end power output. We charge 60 plus vat for a session with print outs for bhp, torque, boost and AFR.

Question: Hi, I have an alfa 156 1.6. Idle becomes a bit uneven when engine is hot and has hesitations when going uphill in particular at low revs, again worse when engine is warm. Any suggestions - i live locally so can come in for rolling road if that is the way forward
Answer: Hi Gary - I'd say checking it out has to be the best bet, as the result otherwise may be spending money on parts you don't need. Please feel free to call us on 01752 345880 for a booking!
